Describes the problems involved in achieving a balance between stockpiles of airmunitions and their respective mobilization production capability. The report examines the elements needed by logistics planners to balance the demand (wartime consumption anticipated) and supply (WRM and production anticipated) of airmunitions. It describes the computerized planning tool (SWIPE) that makes visible the by-item airmunitions position for each year of a five-year program; and evaluates the supply and demand for munitions occurring in any interim year. The report concludes with observations regarding munitions management; the appendixes contain the SWIPE computer program, and instructions for users.
